This church and the view down the canal were one of my essential photos of Amsterdam that I wanted to capture and was very saddened (and yet hopeful that it might be over by the time we arrived) to see the main part of the...More

The Zuiderkerk ("southern church") is an early 17th-century Protestant church in the Nieuwmarkt area, the city's first church built specifically for Protestant services. It is one of my favourite areas of the city, and the church is a jewel in the crown. The design of...More

I could only admire this church from the exterior, a sign on the door states that tours are now closed for the church. It's a pleasant location tucked away where there are fewer tourists. Great for some photos and a pleasant stroll around the perimeter.

This church is beautiful and I guarantee it is the most prettiest place to take a picture in Amsterdam! The towers is precisely in the middle of the canal, making the picture looks like a postcard. Highly recommended!

This church is the older,smaller version of the Westerkerk. This bell tower is smaller than the Westerkerk but I think the tour more interesting. You can only visit as part of the guided tour - cost €7.50, and you need to leave all bags at...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

My recollection is there were several bridges with love locks on them, though there was no specific one unlike the Old Bridge in Wurzburg, Germany.
